Three years after the launch of the Micro Four Thirds, Panasonic has unveiled its fourth line of cameras that uses the interchangeable lens camera technology.
The Lumix GX1 borrows some of its features, such as its 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor, from the G3 camera. It offers a sensitivity range of up to ISO 12,800 and features the high-speed image processor Venus Engine.
Inspiration for the GX1's body came from Panasonic GF line of cameras, but features a "higher-built quality than the GF1," says Barnaby Sykes, product manager for Lumix G at Panasonic UK. "The GX line is a premium line of cameras," he adds.
The GX1 also offfers a burst rate of 4.2fps at full resolution, a pinpoint autofocus mode as in the G3, and full-HD movie recording capabilities in MP4 and AVCHD format.
The camera weighs 413g and will be available from mid-December starting at £599 with its standard 14-42mm zoom.
